Qiujing Wong co-founded Borderless Productions in 2006 with a passion to create positive, economic, social and environmental change. Shas a genius for turning her vision into real action and inspiring social change by addressing some of society’s most difficult issues through film.
The award winning company, which has produced innovative films and campaigns in New Zealand (and around the world), has grown into a formidable organisation which constantly pushes the boundaries and demonstrates leadership.
Her drive is illustrated in initiatives she involves
herself in, including Be. Accessible, a social movement already proving to
effect change for New Zealanders who live with a disability. She was also part
of the development of the Telecom Foundation’s brand and campaign.
Qiujing has shared her passion for filmmaking and positive
social change through her roles as a mentor and lecturer to students of all
ages through a variety of organisations including Leadership NZ, University of
Auckland and the First Foundation.
In 2006, she was awarded the Carolyn Stolman Humanitarian
Award in California for her work on A
Grandmother’s Tribe, a film and
campaign with the goal to raise awareness and support for grandmothers in
sub-Saharan Africa who raise the 14-18 million orphaned grandchildren left
behind after losing their own parents to HIV/AIDs. This led to 11 homes being
built, schools fees paid, a farm purchased for grandmothers and on-going
commitment to education of children.
There is no limit to the difference a good leader can make. It can be as significant as changing the culture of a classroom of children and as worldly as turning the tide on injustice. All good leaders have the potential to catalyse great changes in our world - the key is that they appreciate the ultimate value of those they are leading. ”
